Note: This story is from my book Overlooked Florida, available on Amazon. Most people know about the big tourist attractions in Key West – Duval Street, the daily Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square, President Truman’s Little White House, Ernest Hemingway’s house, and the Mel Fisher Shipwreck Museum. But there is a lot more to see […]

Note: This is an update from a story in my book Overlooked Florida – 30 Great Florida Destinations You Shouldn’t Miss! On a trip to the Florida Keys we stopped to pay a visit to an old time movie star. Sitting in a cradle at a small marina next to the Holiday Inn in Key […]

And it’s the best kind of company there is! My cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky are two of our favorite people in the world, and we always love spending time with them when we visit them at their home in Muskegon, Michigan. They decided it was time to get out of the 18° […]

One of our favorite things to do here is to take a slow drive through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge seeing how many different animals we can spot, which can range from 50 or more varieties of birds to deer, raccoons and armadillos, and even bobcats and alligators.

We started the day with our usual routine of answering emails and checking a couple of our favorite blogs. Then we drove over to the Canaveral National Seashore in New Smyrna Beach. The place is a natural […]

One of the places we have been considering as a winter base and possible future home if and when we ever hang up the keys is St. Augustine. The oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement, Saint Augustine was founded in 1565 by the Spanish and has a long and colorful history. We visited there a couple […]

Terry and I are beach people, and we are never happier than when we are feeling ocean breezes on our skin and have sand under our toes. So we made yesterday a beach day. We drove down to New Smyrna Beach and spent some time poking around there. It’s a nice little town, and very […]

Somebody asked me how our electrical problem has been doing. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and I hope I don’t jinx myself by saying this, but so far, so good. It hasn’t happened again since I smacked the inverter with a big heavy pair of vise grips the other day. I guess there’s something to […]

We are not ready to stop traveling yet, and probably never will be, as long as our health allows. But after almost 17 years of fulltime RVing we are slowing down. We like being at Point A and Point B and Point C, but we find we are not enjoying the trips between those places […]

Note: This article first appeared in the January-February 2009 issue of the Gypsy Journal. President Harry S. Truman was one of the most popular political figures of the 20th Century and helped shape the face of not only the United States but the rest of the world in the years following World War II.
